There's a documentary about cystic fibrosis campaigner Orla Tinsley, Say Yes to the Dress is back, and Christy Dignam's on Living with Lucy . . .

Pick of the day

Orla Tinsley: Warrior, 9.35pm, RTÉ One

Irish campaigner Orla Tinsley has spent her life coping with cystic fibrosis. With a limited life expectancy, she believed that her 30th birthday would also be her expiration date.

Having left Ireland to study in Columbia University, she turned 30 in NYC and, at almost the same time, was put on the list for a double lung transplant there.

Spanning over 14 months, this documentary charts her failing health, the excruciating six false alarms, and the lucky seventh transplant call which arrived just in time to give Orla a new chance at life.

Ending Tonight

The Town, 10.00pm, Virgin Media One

The documentary series filmed across one year in the county Laois town of Portlaoise following families facing issues at the heart of Irish society comes to a conclusion.

Don't Miss

Living with Lucy, 9.00pm, Virgin Media One

You never know how these episodes will work out, as often the private person Lucy holes up with can be quite different from the public version. But this one should be a good 'un.

This week Lucy spends time with Christy Dignam, the much-loved lead singer with Dublin rock band Aslan. Christy's been through the mill ever since the Lan started making waves in the 1980s.

Earlier on he had to battle against drug addiction, but in more recent years he's been coping with cancer. Lucy gets to meet him on his own patch, and see how he's getting on.
